Delegates at the Sustainable Events Summit (SES) on 21 November will hear the findings of research by Positive Impact on event sustainability.

The research, commissioned by SES, has seen non-profit sustainability specialist Positive Impact canvas more than 100 brands. The findings of the research will be made available exclusively to delegates at the summit, who will also have the chance to discuss the findings with panellists and speakers.

The event will feature a range of keynote sessions and interactive panels, including a panel on sustainability featuring Access editor Emma Hudson and Paul Colston, editor of our sister magazine Conference News. 

Social entrepreneur Benita Matofska from The People Who Share will also be giving a keynote address on the sharing economy – a global campaign that aims to build a global future of people exchanging their goods and services.

Launching the SES programme, Rick Stainton, MD of organiser Smyle said: “We are very excited that this year’s Summit will see the launch of a major piece of industry research that will reveal our current understanding of the role of sustainability in live events.  It will benchmark current perceptions, look at best practice and examine opportunities for our businesses within this framework.”

“People attending the Summit will receive advance copies of the report and be able to join in the discussion of the research findings. We therefore encourage all event professionals to join us at the Summit to help us pave the way forward for greater event sustainability in the future.”
